The atmosphere was nice and cosy with good music and good service. The cocktails had a decent taste, but the presentation was horrible. Also the drinks were really small.

Classic and welcoming cocktail bar where we were given a free selection of meats, cheese and bread. The place looks amazing and the staff were very welcoming, it's slightly off the main streets of Lucca and you could easily think you're heading the wrong way...More

We almost gave up looking for this place....what a shame that would have been! The bar was quiet as it was a Sunday but had great old speakeasy ambiance, friendly bar staff & a good size menu of cocktails from which to choose. The cocktails...More
